PURPOSE Active HCO3- transport through the corneal endothelial cell layer causes a dehydration of the corneal stroma and is thought to be driven by Na/K- and HCO3(-)-dependent ATPase as well as an electro-genic Na/HCO3- cotransport. Transmembrane bicarbonate transport has also been associated with the recently characterised membrane-anchored isoform of carbonic anhydrase (CA IV) in various tissues. We investigated the localisation of CA IV in human fresh and cultured epi- and endothelium at the… CONTINUE READING
